This paper deals with the participle constructions in the first edition (1685) of the chronicle of Jan Norbert Zatocil of Loewenbrugk (1630-1691), and with reflection and adopting of these constructions in the third edition of the same work (1819). The editor of the third edition, Vaclav Rodomil Kramerius, tried to adjust it to the state of the Czech language at that time, mainly with reference to the vocabulary, syntax and participle constructions. In the third edition, the number of these constructions increases considerably and the number of past participles grows in the first place, especially when one action is preceded by other. The constructions consisting of the clauses with different subjects appear only seldom in the third edition, which is due to the influence of Dobrovsky and Nejedly, although they are very frequent in the original edition of 1685.
